Possums are evil incarnate, especially the Virginia possum. They are disgusting scavengers, spittle in the face of humanity and should be eradicated.

/In other words, I despise them.
//Nuke the Va Possum from orbit. The only way to be sure.

you gave the idea away, farmer.  Not that Syfy pays much for their stuff anyway, judging by the quality of the croc movie I saw part of last night.  The new park biologist was kind of cute, but I didn't watch to see if she got eaten by the croc who was some sort of terminator-style automaton.  Are the 'actors' in that genre that jaded about the quality of the schlock that they don't even hide their 'notgiveafark' as they pantomine their parts?

N American possums unable to be quite the same as Aussie possums, tho must be very distantly related & marsupial.  How many times removed would that be, one canna help but ponder???  Almost half a world removed, from 38 degrees N x 76 degrees W for state of VA to ~ 36 degrees S x 150 degrees W for Canberra.  Too Lazy to haul globe down to tape-measure & convert how many either miles or Km that is.  Subterranean distance straight thru would be less, but not practical to travel.

OMG I watched a very few minutes of ROBO-CROC. SYFY has quit even making an effort, they just put out anything that they can get their hands on. The possum idea would be MUCH MUCH MUCH better than gatoroid VS snakething or sharks in a tornado, or whatever pure crap thay are showing this week.

Funny Sci-Fi was a good network that put out some good movies and features, SYFY is the lowest common denominator network that shows stupid ghost stories and wrestling ?!?!

Is a possom anything like an opossum?

Csb time:

When I was about 17; my dog buster and I were playing fetch out in the yard. Suddenly; he went into the garage, crawled under my old truck and started scratching at some plywood. I lifted back the plywood and sitting there was the biggest damned oppossum I've ever seen. Buster, immediately, snapped up the oppossum and started prancing away; he obviously thought that the oppossum was a rather large squeaky toy. So, I chased after him; got him to release the oppossum and put oppossum on the driveway. The oppossum was obviously dead. I took buster inside; where I found my dad and said, "Dad, the dog just killed a oppossum.". Dad said, "Are you sure that the oppossum wasn't, you know, playing oppossum?". It was then that I looked out of the window and saw the oppossum walking down the driveway.

FTFA:
Former prime minister Julia Gillard once recalled an embarrassing dinner with a visiting foreign leader in 2012 which was interrupted by possum urine dribbling from the roof towards a valuable painting. ...
"There was much shooing of people out of the dining room because someone spotted wee making its way down the wall to one of the very precious paintings from the National Gallery."


I first read that as "shooting".

/They should take that possum urine and send some to that whackjob from Oregon.

Good Choice to post distance conversion under, by pure Good Luck.
11,475 miles = 18.467 km, by tape-measurement on Ntl Geo Atlas Ring Of Fire map (credit yer sources, 'tis said somewhere).

Note to subby: Because I considered submitting this article, I took it upon myself to learn that possums, are possums in Australia and that the U.S. has opossums.

I don't hate them, I just wish that they would stay out of my yard. My dog has become an expert at killing them and because they are loaded with fleas it means an instant infestation of the little bloodsuckers

As opposed to Canberra itself, which is suffering from a kangaroo infestation...

/well, really it's a human infestation of kangaroo territory
//the mob is losing members left and right
///a group of kangaroos is a mob, so pissing off the mob in Australia can have two meanings

So 1 km = 621.378 miles?  Gotta love math typos.  (Is that 18.467 or 18,467 ??)

I love the fact that the comments section on an Australian issue reported in a British paper is full of Americans who think that the problem could be solved if Australians had more guns.

1 - how many guns do you need to hunt a possum?
2 - would you hunt possums with a gun INSIDE your house?
3 - Australia has NOT banned private gun ownership
4 - Really? You'd hunt possums inside your house?
5 - Are you some sort of insane redneck?
6 - No, I mean it. Despite what the NRA would have you believe, most Australians are perfectly happy with our gun laws. We can on guns, we can hunt, sure, we can't 'concealed carry' in public, but you know that isn't so bad.
7 - a gun is a tool, like a butcher knife, a harpoon or an alligator.
8 - Five days? But I'm mad now!
9 - I'd kill you if I had my gun
10- That's a bloody outrage, it is! I want to take this all the way to the Prime Minister.

Australians possums (Not those horrible oppossum things) have a thing about toes. The last 2 places I have been at, whenever the possums want something they came up and nibbles on my toes.

I sleep with my door open to let the cat out, but there is a really bold possum in my new place that has came into my bedroom and started nibbling on my toes as I slept.

The only thing I could think of was "Oi fark off. I am not dead yet".

Like the lodge, I have a possum infestation in the roof of my library. Funny as fark when one gets too fat and crashes through the ceiling into a group of kids. Still, being Darwin kids they are all then happy to play catch the possum for me (& I then have to tell some of them, let it go outside. No, you are not going to cook it). The staff have a bit of a problem with it though, not because of the possums but because when the baby possums are about we get snakes in the roof looking to munch on baby possum.

Danger Avoid Death, it's difficult for me not  to commit math tyops!  18,467 is more like right. Totally Unable to compute what thru-the earth distance would be, besides hotter than practical.
Right, N American o-possums are oogly.  Agree  with several above, esp cretinbob & Bathia_Mapes.

In Australia the creature in question is called possum, and has very little to do with US opossums, DRTFA-snarker.

Whether it's an Australian possum (cute) or a North American possum (awful hell-spawn of destruction), the last thing we need is for it to be some how mutantly combined with either a shark, octopus or alligator, KTHX.

once, long ago, there was a greater southern landmass called Gondwana.  It included Australia, South America, Africa and Antarctica.  Thus the whole marsupials in Australia thing.  The Virginia opossum more than likely slowly wandered north from South America much like a modern lazy mexican.  It might have taken 150 million years to reach Ohio, and it more than likely wasn't worth the trip, but it's here now.   It's cuter cousins stayed in the south, must be a southern thing as I hear cousins are hotter in the south.

It's cute even without the comparison.

Well, maybe not so cute if they're multiplying inside of your walls, but the same could be said of squirrels...
